hello evveryone, I was just out looking at my quail and i noticed one has a big blakish thing on her toe, it looks to be infected and swollen, I will get pics either later today ot tomorrow, i dont know what to do, shes eating and drinking and acting normal, what do you guys think it is and what can i do to heal it? there on a wire floor cage but im upgrading them to a bigger cage on the ground in about a week. Thanks

here are some pics. sorry there so blurry she wouldnt keep still! it looks like it has gotten better in 2 days but itd dtill swollen and infected,

The first type would be a local. I'm hoping Monarc or AhappyChick
will see this thread and comment.

When I say local I mean a creme like Bacitracin.

quail are pretty hearty birds but just in case u prob want to use something like neosporin and if it gets worse u might need to do a lil bit of amputation
